Somebody set up us the bomb

From the Times.

The Secretary-General of the United Nations was forced to duck behind the podium at a press conference in Baghdad today when a suspected rocket attack shook the building he was in and sent debris falling from the ceiling.

Ban Ki Moon was giving a joint press conference with Nouri al-Maliki, the Iraqi Prime Minister, at his office in the Green Zone, when the rocket landed about 50 metres away. Reporters said Mr al-Maliki had just finished telling reporters that Mr Ban's visit was a sign that Iraq had made "huge strides on the road to stability" when the blast occurred.
